“An Old Memory” for the Holidays

I took the photo in 1983, just a few months after I got my first camera and I was only shooting black and white so I could learn how to use the camera. Some cat’s paw had taken down one of my cut paper snowflakes as he sat to look out the window. What a […]

Bella! and Her Foster Friends Tote and Accessory Bags

Tote bags make great gifts, and you know you’re supporting my rescue activities with every purchase! I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas bag and embellished with buttons sewn on by hand. I know that not all kitties are black, despite what my house full of housepanthers try to […]

As the Leaves Turn, Feline Silhouettes Looking Out the Door

Giuseppe, Mimi and Mewsette spend some time watching out the front door. There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, […]

My Studio Window in Autumn

All the years I’ve been here I’ve loved my time in my studio, which was also once my foster room. I often remark how my cats enjoy spending time with me in my studio because they sense my own enjoyment of what I’m doing, and for frightened fosters not only can they sense that but […]

A Little Shakespeare: “Enter Three WITCHES” Halloween Card

“Enter: Three WITCHES” features Miss Mewsette, her mom Mimi and her brother Giuseppe re-enacting a scene from Shakespeare’s MacBeth. Guess the kids have been getting into my literature textbooks again. I thought my Riverside Shakespeare was too heavy for them, but there is no getting in the way of a determined reader. Now that they’ve […]

A Pantherish Cabochon

Giuseppe is a housepanther, but he does have a rather real pantherish profile.  This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my photo “Watching the World” . We all love my studio window, a big, old, battered metal-framed casement about 4′ x 4′ on the second floor looking out at the […]

Bella! Accessory Bags

I wasn’t sure the design would fit when I bought these, but she fit so well it was meant to be. I found sets of these white cotton accessory bags on clearance—a good price for me to experiment with. This is the largest bag, 8.5″ x 5.5″, the other two are smaller and smaller yet […]

Are You An Ailurobibliophile?

I’m working out a design I’ve had in mind for a while—since just about a year ago to be exact! This was to be September 2017’s new introduction, starting with a tote bag then possibly moving to other things, and the concept would lead to a line of items with this design and others, using […]

Decorate Your Autumn Table With a Tortie Tablecloth

Handmade of unbleached cotton muslin, this little accent tablecloth is 36″ x 36″ and has the same image, “The Roundest Eyes”, printed and hand-tinted four times, one on each corner. It is signed and dated below the design and has my handwritten “label” reading “handmade, hand-printed, hand-painted” and the year. Washing instructions are included on […]
